The udder test paper is a specially adapted indicator paper for the rapid determination of streptococcal mastitis. Milk of cows infected with this disease cannot be sold, if it is obviously changed. Most cases of mastitis cause the pH value of the milk to depart from the normal value, and the udder test paper detects such changes. Occasionally, only one teat of an udder shows symptoms of the infection. Consequently, all four teats require testing. The udder test paper contains four indicator areas, one for a sample from each teat.Color reaction: The milk of healthy cows changes the indicator color to yellowish-green (pH 6.4 - 6.6). Milk from moderately afflicted animals causes the color to turn green (pH about 7) while milk from severe cases of mastitis gives rise to different shades of blue (pH 7 - 8 or higher). If the indicator remains yellow, the milk shows a pronounced acidic pH value (pH 6.3 or less) indicating other types of diseases.Presentation: 20 udder test papers 90 x 140 mm in PE bags, Instruction Sheet
